Call Me (1966)

Unfamiliar with this week's song. Hear it here.

Oh, I'm very familiar with Call Me and probably know every word of it. The 60's brought us such great songs.

1) Chris Montez sings that you can always call him, regardless of the hour. Do you believe that it's ever too late to phone someone?

I rarely call anyone after 8:00 PM.  Generally, I think folks would just as soon not have a friendly chat at night.  There are times that I do when I've been unable to catch up with someone at other times.  I put my phone on DO NOT DISTRUB from 10:00PM until 6:00AM.I do have it set where my kids and Daddy can get through but no one else.  It truly doesn't hurt for us to be unavailable sometimes. ~we forget that~

2) He insists that you can depend on him, even when your friends desert you. Who is someone you can trust to have your back, no matter what?

My family and I am blessed to have several friends that I can trust to have my back as well.  I feel very fortunate for sure!!!

3) Billy Crystal serenades Meg Ryan -- via answering machine -- with "Call Me" in When Harry Met Sally. Answering machines have been replaced by voice mail. Who most recently left you a voice mail?
Funny you would ask, because we so rarely have a message.  But, on Thursday, Hubby's eye doctor's office left him a message.  It 's a thousand wonders we got it because we so rarely even look at the machine.

4) Chris Montez is a graduate of El Camino College in Torrance, California. The average daytime temperature in November in Torrance is 70º. How is the weather where you are today?
We've had clouds and rains the past two days but today is just suppose to be partly cloudy with no rain.  We were having some real winter weather and then it has turned off extremely warm again.  I wish it would turn colder and stay that way, not bone chilling cold but Christmasey cold. ~smile~ 

5) Today Chris actively promotes a healthy lifestyle to children. He was honored for his efforts by the group SOPA (Stop Obesity, Promote Activity). Do you believe you get enough exercise?

I workout on my elliptical every morning Monday thru Friday for 30 minutes.  I go at a moderate pace and watch movies on my IPad while doing so.  I'm quite sure I could do more but I do feel that what I do is certainly better than nothing.

6) Released in late 1965, "Call Me" became a big hit in 1966, reaching #2 on the charts. Even though it sold millions of copies and was certified as a Gold Record, it never hit #1. Is winning, or being the best, important to you?

I definitely want to always be trying to be the best I can be in whatever I am doing.  Being #1 never enters my mind.  If I'm being and doing my best, that's good enough for me. It's a lifelong challenge for sure!

7) In 1966, when this was playing on juke boxes, kids were watching Batman and Star Trek. If you had your choice of watching an episode right now, which would you choose: Star Trek or Batman?
Well, believe it or not, I have never seen either one and care absolutely nothing about seeing them.  So, think I would sit this one out.

8) Also in 1966, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay was born. Do you enjoy cooking?

This picture was taken Thanksgiving Day and I had thoroughly enjoyed cooking our meal.  I do not get it into day to day cooking and thankfully Hubby is pretty satisfied with rather simple meals.  If I'm having our family over or guests then I really enjoy preparing for them.  

9) Random question -- You have the opportunity to perform in the circus! Would you rather be shot from a cannon, or put your head in the lion's mouth?

Neither one, I'd choose to ride an elephant. 

Have a wonderful 1st day of December!!!

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Love your exercise answer. I should move more, not only because it's good for me, but because I feel better when I do it.

    1. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy. What’s app contact : +44 7520 636249‬

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't check the messages on the home phone. Virtually no one but my mom, telemarketers, and the occasional doctor call it so we just don't ever look. I think my hope is that if I miss enough of her messages my mom will just start calling my cell phone like a normal person. LOL

  3. I agree with you about making ourselves unavailable at times. I just do not care to be plugged in all of the time. Loved your answers! Have a great weekend!

  4. Now why didn't I think outside the box and choose riding an elephant?!! Love it!! I enjoyed your responses to these sometimes silly questions! I am like you... simple meals for the two of us, but I LOVE to prepare a big meal for a big crowd!! Happy weekend!

  5. We would both make beautiful elephant riders, would we not? That is so funny that we both thought the same thing. We got rid of our home phone several years ago and occasionally still look toward to non-existent machine to see if its blinking. Habits. But, we have not missed having the land line at all. I think also we both agree that cooking should be used only for special occasions these days. My, how times have changed.

  6. You get a lot of exercise! Impressive.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
